Old house (picture on the left) was a small 2 bedroom bungalow on an narror 30' x 105' lot. It was rebuild into a beautiful 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom contemporary home with distinctive assimetrical design. We kept front and side walls, and added large kitchen and living room at the back on the first floor. Space on the second floor was designed to accomodate a spasious master bedroom with soaring 14' vaulte ceilings, spa like ensuite with heated floors and walk - in closet, plus 3 bedrooms and 2 washrooms.
We were able, using the exterior walls of the existing house, to raise the first floor ceiling from 8 to 10 ffeet. Extensive changes have been applied to the first floor layout, to make space for a larger open concept living room and a home office.
